The ADS7816 is a 12-bit, 200kHz sampling analog to- digital converter. It features low power operation with automatic power down, a synchronous serial interface, and a differential input. The reference voltage can be varied from 100mV to 5V, with a corresponding resolution from 24mV to 1.22mV. – From TI Applications
ADS7816 – 12-Bit High Speed A/D Converter
Low power, automatic power down, and small size make the ADS7816 ideal for battery operated systems or for systems where a large number of signals must be acquired simultaneously. It is also ideal for remote and/or isolated data acquisition.
12-Bit High Speed Micro Power Sampling Analog-to-Digital converter
The ADS7816 is a classic successive approximation register (SAR) analog-to-digital (A/D) converter. The architecture is based on capacitive redistribution which inherently includes a sample/hold function.
The converter is fabricated on a 0.6µ CMOS process. The architecture and process allow the ADS7816 to acquire and convert an analog signal at up to 200,000 conversions per second while consuming very little power
MOSIS Is An Multi-Project Wafer (MPW) Integrated Circuit (IC) Fabrication Service Provider.
MOSIS – Affordable Integrated Circuits Fabrication
“MOSIS is operated by the Information Sciences Institute at the University of Southern California (USC). MOSIS merges multiple IC designs submitted by both companies and universities onto multi-project wafers (MPW) to share the cost of fabrication among multiple users.”
MOSIS – Metal Oxide Semiconductor Implementation Service
MOSIS keeps the cost of fabricating prototype quantities low by aggregating multiple designs onto one mask set. This allows customers to share overhead costs associated with mask making, wafer fabrication, and assembly.
MOSIS Design Reference
A variety of design flows (digital, analog, mixed-signal) can be used with a number of different CAD tools, technology files, design kits, libraries and IP to create designs for processes accessed by MOSIS.

Intersil’s products include amplifiers, analog front ends, communication interfaces, data converters, digital potentiometers, display solutions, DSL solutions, optical storage products, power management products, real time clocks, switches/MUX’s, etc. In 2017 Intersil became a part of Renesas.
Intersil – Analog and Power Semiconductors
Intersil has developed into a leading analog semiconductor manufacturer with five specialized product groups: Consumer Power, Consumer Electronics, Analog Mixed Signal, Industrial Communications and Automotive & Military/Space Specialties.
Intersil was founded in 1967. After being acquired by General Electric Corp in 1981, it was sold to Harris Corporation in 1988, at which point the name was retired. Intersil at Wikipedia.
The JFET-input operational amplifiers in the TL07x series are designed as low-noise versions of the TL08x series amplifiers with low input bias and offset currents and fast slew rate.
Quadrature Oscillator – 100 kHz – TL072-TI – TL072-TI Opamp
The low harmonic distortion and low noise make the TL07x series ideally suited for high-fidelity and audio preamplifier applications. Each amplifier features JFET inputs (for high input impedance) coupled with bipolar output stages integrated on a single monolithic chip.

The LF198, LF298, LF398 are monolithic sample-and-hold circuits which utilize BI-FET technology to obtain ultra-high dc accuracy with fast acquisition of signal and low droop rate. Operating as a unity gain follower, dc gain accuracy is 0.002% typical and acquisition time is as low as 6 µs to 0.01%. A bipolar input stage is used to achieve low offset voltage and wide bandwidth. Input offset adjust is accomplished with a single pin, and does not degrade input offset drift.
The wide bandwidth allows the LF198 to be included inside the feedback loop of 1 MHz op amps without having stability problems. Input impedance of 1010Ohm allows high source impedances to be used without degrading accuracy.
LF398 – Monolithic Sample and Hold Circuit
P-channel junction FET’s are combined with bipolar devices in the output amplifier to give droop rates as low as 5 mV/min with a 1 µF hold capacitor. The JFET’s have much lower noise than MOS devices used in previous designs and do not exhibit high temperature instabilities. The overall design guarantees no feed-through from input to output in the hold mode, even for input signals equal to the supply voltages.
